What’s normal and what’s dementia? Symptoms can tip you off as to whether a patient may be experiencing early dementia signs.
Ask your patients: Do you keep losing your keys, or forgetting names of people you just met? Maybe you can’t remember where you left your wallet more often than you’d care to admit.
Such lapses of memory tend to get people of a certain age to start stressing that they’re experiencing Alzheimer’s or dementia symptoms.
